Can I combine Phoenix 350/12 Inverter remote on/off switch (5v) with 12 volt system switch?

Hi all,

In my caravan I currently have an option to switch of my 12 volt battery. I also have a Victron Phoenix 350/12 inverter which has remote on/off functionality. I would like to make use of my existing outlet to be able to switch the inverter on/off remotely from within hand reach, while currently one switch in the outlet is not used. Could I do the setup as in the picture? Thus combine the 12 volt and 5 volt (neutral) wire?


Hope you can help.


Tim

I don't think this will work.
But if you switch + instead of - with the switch you could use this: https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/inverting-remote-on-off-cable

Hi @Tim Visser

No, please don't combine multiple voltages on the same connection. use an exclusive contact for the remote connection.
